Hot Coffee Modder Speaks Out
Aside from some April Fools jokes and a preview of GTA IV, the upcoming issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly will apparently contain a short interview with the person who found the infamous “hot coffee” segments in GTA: San Andreas. Dutch modder, Patrick Wildenborg, talks about finding the hidden sex scenes in the game, the ensuing media backlash, and how Rockstar first tried to pin the scenes on the modding community.
It’s a strange feeling to find e-mails from all the major news companies in your mail box… luckily it didn’t have any lasting negative effect… We [in the modding community] never anticipated how this thing was going to be blown out of proportion by the mainstream media and the politicians…
I’m still proud of finding and uncovering the [Hot Coffee] scenes – because of all the work and research it took… When I look back at it, I think [Rockstar] should have reacted differently, but I don’t hold a grudge at all.
He also said he doesn’t expect to find any such scenes in the upcoming GTA IV. Somewhere, there’s some gamer shouting, “No sex in GTA IV!? Pff, forget it then.”
